Letter by Charles Harrison addressed to General Bingham, 18 August 1820
“Napoleon is going on well, and has taken to riding again; he has asked for an extension of his limits, and preparations are making for removing the present cordon of sentries out of his sight, besides which another new road is in contemplation. I shall not be surprised to see him pass the Huts some of these days. Admiral Plampin asked to see him before he left, and they returned him the old answer, “If anyone wished to see him, the application must come through the Grand Marshal of the Palace”. I shall not fail to give you an account of all the alterations that may take place here, with regard to our prisoner, as you must always feel interested about him. He certainly is much relaxed in his feeling towards the people in power here, and he now frequently sends Montholon over to Plantation House on matters relating to himself.” Signed C[harles] H[ arrison]
